Finding Your Heart Within Sorrow

This is a 4x4 page I made for a friend. I wanted to use a quote that gave her strength within her sadness and I think this one by Kahlil Gibran is just perfect. It is one that I often think about in reference to my dad.

Above is the entire collage before it is folded into a square. The quote is on the back side. This was done mostly using digital scrapbooking elements. The two hearts and the bird image on the front side were added after I printed it out. I also wrapped the bird image with the brown string before gluing it on to add more texture. Here is the front side alone:

And this is the back side alone:

That's so beautiful, T. You are one of the most generous and kind souls I have ever met. You were such a great source of support when my mom died. This woman is so lucky to call you friend!
